    I want to study psychology at university but a couple of the universities I am interested ask for a B in maths at GCSE, but I only have a C. Is this a requirement or a preferance? Would my EPQ be able to change this grade? Not sure what to do

    Depends how strict the unis are but I had a friend who was straight out rejected as she had a grade C and not the B they asked for.

    Maybe speak to the uni to check if it will result in a rejection. No idea if the EPQ will help - I didn't do it - but don't think it would impact on required grades for gcse's.

    There are loads of unis that allow a grade C so just keep researching. Certainly wouldn't risk all of my choices so make sure you include some choices that you meet the entry requirements for.

    Good luck
